    Any particular doos and DON'TS!

    Any thing I should do that I cant while the engine is installed? Give the hull a good cleaning

    How much does the 4-tec engine weigh? 200 lbs

    How much does the hull without engine weigh? Looking to flip hull and work on it! 200 lbs less 795 lbs dry weight. Drain your fuel tank and get 4 guys to help you flip the hull over. Its HEAVY!
    ETC......

    I actually dont use the driveshaft tool. I use super hulk strength
    Most people will need the tool though.

    Hit the slide ring with a rubber mallet a few times to break any corrosion loose. Then stand at the back of the ski and with both hands try and slide the slide ring back while someone else prys the circlip out of the driveshaft.

    Do this with the pump in place. After you get the circlip out pull the pump off and then give the driveshaft a good yank and it will come out.
